prior to this change, using a non-default syslibdir was impractical on
systems where the ordinary library paths contain musl-incompatible
library files. the file containing search paths was always taken from
/etc, which would either correspond to a system-wide musl
installation, or fail to exist at all, resulting in searching of the
default library path.
the new search strategy is safe even for suid programs because the
pathname used comes from the PT_INTERP header of the program being
run, rather than any external input.
as part of this change, I have also begun differentiating the names of
arch variants that differ by endianness or floating point calling
convention. the corresponding changes in the build system and and gcc
wrapper script (to use an alternate dynamic linker name) for these
configurations have not yet been made.
currently, only i386 is tested. x86_64 and arm should probably work.
the necessary relocation types for mips and microblaze have not been
added because I don't understand how they're supposed to work, and I'm
not even sure if it's defined yet on microblaze. I may be able to
reverse engineer the requirements out of gcc/binutils output.
1. search was wrongly beginning with lib itself rather than dso head
2. inconsistent resolution of function pointers for functions in plt
first, use $LD_LIBRARY_PATH unless suid. if that fails, read path from
/etc/ld-musl-$ARCH.path and fallback to a builtin default.
- library search path is hard coded
- x86_64 code is untested and may not work
- dlopen/dlsym is not yet implemented
- relocations in read-only memory won't work
